Americas Weekly Chart < Week Ending 01st Jan 2011 >

The week's top-selling games ranked by unit sales (Nintendo DS, PS2, PS3, PSP, Tag Invalid, Wii, Xbox 360)

Hard to tell
Is this rumor true? Rumor votes 36

Kinect close to 5 mil in US alone. Tops all Wii software. Even Joyride charted and now ahead of AAA games like GT5 and Fable.
VGChart could be wrong though, but with companies giving shiped numbers, how can you tell?

@Eagle: This is for the week ending Jan 1st. Calm down with the life time sales.

The Wii racks were pretty much empty after the holidays. It surprised me as I've only bought 1 Wii game in the past year versus 20 for the PS3.

Look at BigPappy. He trolls yet. He received a well said. Mods do nothing about the troll here, especially trolls on team 360.

fake numbers anyway..

I can't understand how that "just dance 2" continues to sell so much.
Spenok  +   1355d ago
Agreed, i dont understand it. I thought after selling so many of them to people personally that there must have been something good about them. But after finally seeing it in action at my cousins house, i was horrified by the actual gameplay. I just dont understand it.

this is a dick move for posting this as a rumor lol. even though I dont necessarily agree with vgc, this should be under news
darkride66  +   1355d ago
Given that VGChartz numbers are almost never accurate when official sources are revealed - VGChartz numbers were being reported "fake" consistently. I think the moderators decision to continue allowing this guy's guesstimates to be posted under "rumor" is fair.
VGChartz doesn't even claim to be accurate but instead have prided themselves as being in the ballpark which is what they're trying for, I guess. If being often 20-30% off NPD numbers and official numbers is "ballpark". They even have a warning on their methodology page not to take their weekly data seriously.
These guesstimates certainly have no business being considered "news" - and until these numbers are confirmed by reputable sources I think that they should continue to be labelled "rumor"

If it takes a video game to excite and stimulate your marriage you've got some problems coming up.

If you cant enjoy your wife doing the above some thing maybe wrong with your man hood.

Not crazy about kinect but it's good to hear the stories people playing and having fun is the point.

A part of me was kinding hoping Kinect would take off... I need to kick the gaming habit anyway.
Balt  +   1355d ago
I love when these numbers come in, real or not, because Sony fans all of a sudden become Nintendo fans and start touting their sales over xbox 360's sales.

Funny stuff.

Spanked. That is what comes to mind when looking at Sony's week to week play by play in sales. Well, if they matter to you. Me, I don't care. I hope they all go out of business and the video game market crashes again.

vgchartz may not be perfect but it's the best we have

as real gamers we should support them

worst troll eva.

Looks like all those B-grade exclusives are not making a blind bit of difference to sales of PS3. Maybe sock-boy can do it for them at the end of Jan?
Masterchef2007  +   1355d ago
VG numbers are only for blind fanboys since they are just wild estimates. Pulling random numbers out of a hat is a better method than looking at this site. Anyways these numbers are for the US only and thus not equal to the world.
